Dogs, Cell Phones, and my Softbank 934SH

September 7, 2009

I have a phone!

Not only is it a phone, but it is also has:

  • 8.0 megapixel camera
  • video recorder
  • television (with all popular channels)
  • 3G connection = fast Internet
  • pedometer
  • UV ray sensor
  • calendar, alarm clock, etc.
  • mirror
  • dictionary
  • 3 inch subdisplay
  • infrared
  • barcode reader
  • kanji reader
  • water proof ability
  • credit and metro card capabilities

And of course there’s a lot more. This craziness is a far cry from my simple, elegant iPhone. My Softbank 934SH (a Sharp phone) is the epitomy of one word: CLUTTER. There are so many things to do with it and it’s going to take me ages to figure it all out. Oh, and let’s not mention the price… I’m trying to forget about that one. But I’m loving it. Isn’t it gorgeous?

Pictures I’ve taken with it (hopefully I’ll be able to use this is as my camera all year long):

Haruka's dog Axel

Let me tell you a story about this dog. He actually is very sweet and cute. I really like him. But he is fifteen years old and is incapable of holding his bladder. So it has been my duty to make sure to take him out every hour or so when no one else is here.

You would think this would be a simple thing to do, right? And admittedly I’ve been getting better at it. But the first few times I went to take him out I was a complete failure. First, just as I was about to open the door, he peed right in front of me!! Arghhh!!! You can imagine my horror!

Then, this morning, I actually managed to get him out the door… in front of which he promptly let loose. ONE FOOT away from where he was supposed to be. Oh, Axel. Just now I finally managed to get him out without any more mishaps. I hope it will stay that way. But he really is cute.
